Four Regional Businesses Receive Native American Venture Acceleration Fund Grants


Four Northern New Mexico Native American-owned and operated businesses received a total of $60,000 in grants through a Native American Venture Acceleration Fund created by Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) and the Regional Development Corporation. The grants are designed to help the recipients create jobs, increase their revenue base and help diversify the area economy.

“These investments create jobs for pueblo-owned businesses and help strengthen the area’s economy,” said Kathy Keith, Los Alamos’ Community Relationships and Partnerships director.

“The Venture Acceleration Fund’s investment in our company will pay off in that we will be able to secure more projects for our company and create more jobs,” said Melissa Blueflower-Sanchez, who with her husband Robert owns R and M Construction, LLC.
